If you’ve read my older posts on here, you’ll know that I love a good quote. I came across this quote recently and it’s really stuck with me…
“If you’re going to rise, you might as well shine.”
Those close to me will know that this year I’ve come to the realisation that I’d like to change careers. I’m still very passionate about and enjoy my current job but I’ve decided that I’m ready to go in a new direction. I’ll go into more detail about this at a later date, but for now I’m going to remind myself of this quote every time I’m tempted to complain about my circumstances or the time it’s taking to move into a new field of work.
Although we may feel like we’re ready for something new in our lives, that doesn’t mean we can’t be thankful for what we already have. So for now my plan is to focus on doing my current job to the best of my ability whilst patiently waiting for and working towards whatever is next in line for me.
I recently picked out a couple of metallic pieces from Missy Empire that were kindly gifted to me. They’re not necessarily the kind of items I’d usually make a bee-line for if I was out shopping, but since I’m trying to focus on shining bright, I thought I’d challenge myself to style them. Here are some photos of the two looks below – which look is your favourite?
